Prawn & Vegetable Korma

Making my own curry paste is something I would like to try one day, but for now it is quicker and easier to buy and use ready made curry paste. It doesn’t stop me adding in extra spices, which I do quite happily to put my own spin on it. The vegetables I use are just ones I have to hand in my fridge and are not set in stone, so feel free to mix it up and use whatever veg you prefer.
